Rasmus Munk is the undisputed champion when it comes to culinary excellence. So it’s no surprise that the Alchemist celebrity chef, who earned his two Michelin stars in Copenhagen, is coming to the United States for the biggest sporting event of the year. In fact, when he hosts an ultra-exclusive dinner in Las Vegas this weekend, it will be his first chance to plate his signature dishes on American soil.
This special experience will be held as three fantastical dinners from February 8th to 10th. Each dinner is held in the Illuminium, a place far more familiar with stargazing than staring at a plate. But for the folks at CAMP, who organized the famous culinary event over Super Bowl weekend, it’s just another day at the office. This culinary startup was founded under the banner of “Chefs are Artists”, serving as a nomadic canvas on which the world’s leading tastemakers can paint unique flavors limited only by their own imaginations. Exists.
Each event hosted by CAMP is limited to 60 guests, giving attendees access to the artists themselves and a personalized experience. Not only unique dishes, but also ultra-rare wine pairings are guaranteed, all served in an inspiring and immersive atmosphere.
The upcoming Munch Dinner serves as a moving proof of concept, not to mention the first opportunity for American diners to finally get a glimpse of The Alchemist’s signature “holistic cuisine” on its home turf. Seamlessly integrating theater and art. According to the restaurant’s website, the philosophy, which combines science, technology and design, aims to “create a comprehensive, dramaturgical sensory experience.”
There is a possibility that sound It’s almost comically exaggerated. But it’s backed up by execution. The execution attracts some of the most discerning palates around the world. In 2023, The Alchemist secured his fifth place in the annual World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, higher than any other Scandinavian outpost.
To make this weekend a success, CAMP worked with Munch and his team to translocate the two-Michelin star restaurant across continents. More than 40 employees have traveled from Alchemist, so the restaurant will return to Copenhagen and close to accommodate the immediate mission.
“We are very excited to bring the flavors of Alchemist and Holistic Cuisine to this wonderful setting in Las Vegas,” Munk says of the event.
The flavors include a number of head-turners, as evidenced by an exclusive first look at the menu. If you attend, you’ll be able to feast your eyes (and mouth) on edible butterflies perched on trees, paired with kale and horseradish. Foie gras shaped like sea urchins, beach crabs, and interstellar goop. Then, a whole pigeon is wrapped in beeswax, garnished with truffles, and hung from a string around its neck. A big game, so to speak. “Unicorn” wines and sparkling cocktails of unknown origin are also promised.
Obviously, Mank and his friends. I’ve hidden some important details to keep the element of surprise. But I can tell you that there is a live music element that is tailored to be in sync with what’s happening at the dinner table. Thanks to PHNTM.
